LCMS in Convention- People Connections

A special event here in St. Louis this week......

Challenging to get good photos from our seats but a couple shots here......
(I know there are official titles to these amazing men- 
but I will mess it up to try and do the official names so here they are as we greet them.)

Tom Waynick- Chaplain to the Pentagon
 and the Guest Speaker for the Evening

Introduction for Merle Freitag

Words of encouragement from Merle

The Telly Award to Steve Hokana-
 as part of the Barnabas Project

(Husband) John in official role as President of the Southeastern District
 with Tom Waynick 
Tom gave amazing examples in his address-
 of ministry connections in the military setting.

John  Denninger and Merle Freitag- with his St. Martin of Tours Silver Medal

Steve Hokana with his Telly Award and John

Jim Doebler- Chairman of the MAF Committee, Steve Hokana, and John

The personal blessing in attending this event 
is that all of these very accomplished men 
 had connections with the congregation 
where we served at
 Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield, Virginia.

They all passed through the halls to worship with us, 
teach and encourage us through the years.

This church is placed to minister to the military community
 and we give thanks for all the leaders that have touched our lives.
Giving Glory to God for each of them.
